1. Yes
2. Please don't post "reviews" on my items that don't actually review the item and instead review other reviewers reviews, or worse, ask the uploader (me) to add the title to the keywords (you know, we do have a forum for these classic TV items wheer you could post such requests).
3. I am still sick of waiting to be able to get those 4 more episodes of "Meet Corliss Archer". The show may be average-to-mediocre but it still deserves to have more episodes uploaded (couldn't be worse than "The Magic Clown", could it?)
4. I hope to watch and review that lovely-looking "Dinah Shore" episode uploaded by someone (I can never remember a name. I went through primary school barely knowing the names of most of my teachers and/or "friends")

I agree with #2, 100%! If you're going to review an item, REVIEW THE ITEM. Don't comment that you don't like the product. Don't use it as a springboard for you to get on a soapbox about your political views. Don't, and I mean this with MUCH sincerity, DON'T attack the uploader. Simply review the item.

Personally, I think anyone who attacks the uploader should have their account deleted. Second offence (let's say they sign up again) have their IP tracked and report them to their ISP.

And if anyone goes on and on about the freedom of speech, go back and re-read the American Constitution. Nowhere does it say that we have the right to be jerks.

And... in closing, I'd like to use a phrase my daddy used to say all the time, and I hold this dear to my heart, "Just because you can, doesn't mean you should."

Another one is reviews like this:
http://www.archive.org/details/Howdy_Doody_misc_ep01

Of course, the lack of minorities on early TV is one of the eras biggest flaws, but exactly what does this review have to do with "Howdy Doody"? Plus, why did they post the exact same review on each episode? Who takes "Howdy Doody" seriously anyway? It wasn't exactly the NBC Evening News.
